Toyota Recalls Sienna Minivans For Shift Defect
Toyota is recalling over 347,000 Sienna minivans nationwide because they can shift out of the park position and roll away.
According to WPRI 12, the recall involves Sienna minivans from the 2005-2007 and 2009-2010 model years. Most of the recalled minivans were sold in the United States.
Toyota says that "the grease used in the shift lever assembly could transfer to other components, causing them to work improperly." The shift can still move out of the park position even when the driver is not pressing the brake pedal.
The company will notify owners by mid-December about the recall. Dealerships will also repair the vehicles for free.
